Healing Hawk by Becky Muth


Her entire life, everyone has just assumed that Nicole “Hawk” Hawkins was a pretty face without much substance. Now to prove them all wrong, she’s taken on the toughest job she could find—as a Redwood Cove firefighter. She’s not on the job long before a deadly fire nearly takes her life, scarring and disfiguring her once gorgeous features in the process.

The worst part of it all? What happened wasn’t an accident.

Arnold “Snowball” Winters, a detective with Redwood Cove's police force, has loved Nicole since the day she first joined the station, and this new change in her appearance doesn’t change what’s in his heart. He’ll do whatever it takes to help her recover both her personal and work lives, recruiting Chance, a young Golden Retriever, to help in this mission.

No sooner is Nicole released from her lengthy hospital stay than another freak fire threatens her again—this time in her own home. Can Arnold and Chance find the culprit in time to save Nicole’s life… and maybe even win her heart while they’re at it?

Healing Hawk is book eight in the Gold Coast Retrievers series. Each book stands completely on its own, but you'll have more fun if you read them all together!

“I am in love with this story!!! …One advice: have the tissues ready to go. Seriously. Don’t ignore this advice, trust me! Because I crrried. And cried. The story kept me on the edge of my seat. Had I not needed sleep badly, I would have read this in one go! But the HEA alone was worth it. Sweet! Intense. Beautiful. Impressive. Impressive. And yes, imprrrressive! It just didn’t suffice to say it only once .” 5 sweet stars from Nadine
